Monster Bronco
Matt Perry from sunny San Diego, California, sent us this image of his '69 monster Bronco that he just finished putting back together. The entire vehicle was stripped down and rebuilt to his liking. The engine bay was Rhino-lined before the 289ci engine was swapped in. Other modifications include an NP435 transfer case, a boxed Dana 44 front axle stuffed with Warn 4340 chrome-moly axles and Detroit Locker, and a boxed rear Ford 9-inch axle with matching axles and locker. The suspension under this ride is a three-link front and rear setup with a 3-inch body lift added to stuff the gigantic tires. Keep a lookout for Matt in the Southern California deserts, as you may find him crawling over... well, just about anything in his path!

Cross-country Snow Climber
There isn't much that Matthew Boualt doesn't throw at his '98 Ford F-150 XLT truck. He's covered much of the country in his off-road ride and conquered some of the toughest terrain out there. Although his F-150 is not caged with a four-link suspension, time behind the wheel has proven invaluable. His Ford runs 4.10 gears with Truetrac front and rear lockers, a K&N FIPK kit, an Edge programmer, custom skidplates, 16x10 Unique Wheels, and 315/75R16 BFGoodrich M-T tires. Both his front and rear bumpers are on their way out the door after taking some recent damage on the trail. They will be replaced with custom setups to allow better approach and departure angles.

Mystery Wheeler
This outstanding photo of an '01 Jeep Cherokee was sent to us with no name attached. It sports a 3-inch BDS suspension lift, 31-inch Dayton Timberline tires, and an Airaid intake system. The owner tells us that as soon as he gets permission from his wife, he'll be adding Bushwacker fender flares, new front and rear bumpers, a winch, and a new custom suspension system. Whoever you are Mr. Mystery Wheeler, we hope you found your way home safely through this deep mudhole.
